Data Processing Pipeline
At two points in the processing pipeline, metadata derived from collected data is inserted into BETYdb:
- At the start of the transfer process, metadata collected and derived during Danforth's initial processing will be pushed.
- After transfer to NCSA, extractors running in Clowder will derive further metadata that will be pushed. This is a subset of the metadata that will also be stored in Clowder's database. The complete metadata definitions are still being determined, but will likely include:
- plant identifiers
- experiment and experimenter
- plant age, date, growth medium, and treatment
- camera metadata
